Re: Tajikistan visa increased to 60 days

They need to correct the FAQ section. You can enter GBAO on the day specified or any day after that (within the date range). Many people have entered after the date specified, especially cyclists who can't predict their dates exactly. Don't worry about it. Thanks, Christian! Sorry, my post was not ...

Re: Beer in Dushanbe

Here's one comment I got: Sim-Sim across the river is connected to the Sim-Sim brand. The beer tastes different every single time. I think Pivzavod by victory park was shut down. All else are imitation Euro/English pubs selling imported beer and serving expats and rich locals. +1 for Sim Sim! We ha...

Re: Iran e-visa system

We already posted this in the Istanbul embassy report, but thought it might make sense to share this info also in this thread: We are a married couple, he with Austrian citizenship, she with a German one. We already traveled to Iran in 2014 and at that time had no difficulties obtaining the visas fr...
